Wall-E Meets Mad Max In The Stunning Music Video for Above & Beyond’s ‘Blue Sky Action’

blue sky action music video

Blue Sky Action is one of Above & Beyond’s latest singles from an upcoming album (expected in 2015), featuring vocalist Alex Vargas. It’s been making the rounds for a few months now; though it was officially released on July 21 on Beatport, the group has been performing the song for several months now at live shows, most notably at Ultra Music Festival  in the pouring rain, as part of a stunning set.

If you don’t know the story of Wall-E, a beloved Pixar film about a robot named Wall-E, then you’ll want to watch that at some point, because the music video  is a clever retelling of the first half an hour of the Pixar movie. The whole story is shot in stunning detail, with a hint of Mad Max thrown in to give the video the most apocalyptic human grittiness one could ask for. (Mad Max is the subject of an upcoming Warner Bros film; check out the trailer here.) The man who plays the human Wall-E is a lonely man who cleans up trash on a barren planet. By the end of the video, like Wall-E’s EVE, a surprise space traveler cures his loneliness.

The video was produced by Alec Eskander of Green Glow Films and directed by Kenlon Clark, an LA-based director who also directed the music video for Sticky Fingers, also featuring Alex Vargas on vocals. Though we thought the music video for Sticky Fingers was well-done, we are absolutely blown away by what Clark put together for Blue Sky Action.
